I went grocery shopping Monday evening. Usually this is a job I leave to my hubby because he is better at it and doesn't mind it. Anyway, I ended up in the grocery Monday evening for a few things. We needed cereal so to the cereal aisle I go. I about fell over from sticker shock.
Even the store brands are high priced any more. I usually buy whatever is on sale or whatever is the cheapest. Doesn't matter if it is store brand or name brand, I get whatever the best deal happens to be that week. Well, there wasn't any "deals" this week, in my opinion. I just about fell over. Some of the brand name stuff is almost $5 a box, and not a jumbo box either.
That seems like a great deal of money for a box of cereal. The store brands were running $3 or more for a 14 or 16 oz box. I picked up a couple bags of the Quaker Oats brand cereal (which weren't a great deal either). They were the cheapest I could find. What's the deal with price of cereal? I can almost bet that our farmers are not getting any of the money for their wheat that is used for the cereals.
Anybody else think that cereal is WAY
overpriced? Thanks for letting me vent.
